Celtic Diary Thursday December 28: Mad About Madden

After his inept performance in the 1-1 draw with his beloved “rangers “, which saw him demoted to a first division game the following week, it comes as no surprise that Bobby Madden has been handed the whistle for Saturdays Glasgow derby.

His antics that day were  bad enough, with at least three examples of what can only be described as cheating, when he ignored dangerous fouls on Celtic players.

 

Given that Johnny Hayes is out for six months, a direct consequence of referees allowing several robust challenges to go unpunished over a considerable period, then this has to be protested and the decision has to be reversed.

Given that CEO Peter Lawwell has expressed his concerns for the safety of all Celtic employees, and accepted a level of responsibility for this, ( take my word for this, he did -to me and one other) then its time for him to at the very least question not only the wisdom of this decision, but the implications of having someone who is a former season book holder at Ibrox and one of their more staunch supporters, the burden of impartiality on Saturday.

Mind you, theres an idea there for a Tifo for the Green Brigade, using the words “cheating”, “referee” and “bastard.”

In England, there are rules about that kind of thing.. ( BBC Sport )

Do referees have to say who they support?

Yes. And referees will not get appointed to the clubs they support.

“At the beginning of every season the referees’ background information is audited,” said Keith Hackett, the former head of Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), the organisation that makes refereeing appointments for Premier League games.

“They complete a form that includes who they support, the history of if they’ve played the game and with the addresses where they are residing.

“That gives you a picture that comes into use when you’re appointing. It’s about ensuring, for example, you wouldn’t appoint a Sheffield-based ref for a Sheffield team.” 

What is the official line?

PGMOL says the process behind referee selection is all about avoiding “unnecessary extra external pressure and scrutiny on referees” in what is an “already a high pressure and demanding job”.

It also says that where a referee lives is not a factor when referee appointments are considered.

So what does happen when you referee your team?

Halsey, a QPR fan, said he refereed his own team twice, before rules over announcing your allegiance came in.

“I lived 35 miles away from Loftus Road,” he said.

“I refereed one win and one loss and I thought ‘I can’t do this again’. I never told them initially because it was back in the 1990s and things like that were only just starting to happen. 

I had to declare it because I felt like celebrating when they won. But once you’ve crossed the white line you’re the ref and you always remained professional.” 

 

Going back quite a while…with Madden its not just a case of who he supports, but who he clearly doesn’t…

Remember this , from 2013?

SINNING St Mirren star Esmael Goncalves has been offered a two-match suspension by the SFA for diving against Celtic on Sunday.

The striker went down after a challenge by Emilio Izaguirre, with Paul McGowan netting the resulting penalty to make it 1-1 in Paisley.

SFA compliance officer Vincent Lunny has offered Goncalves a two-match ban for “simulation” and the player now has until tomorrow to respond.

Meanwhile, referee Bobby Madden has been demoted two divisions this weekend and will oversee Arbroath against Albion Rovers following his error-strewn display at St Mirren Park, which Neil Lennon branded “appalling”.

 

 

After the game in March this year, an SFA source told the Daily Record that Madden hadn’t been demoted…

“Fixtures for referees are delivered in four or six week ballots and we’re currently on a six week rota.

“In that time, category one officials will be given charge of two or three Premiership fixtures, a Championship game and will also be handed duties as a fourth official in a top flight match.

 “It’s a nonsense to suggest Bobby has been demoted in any way, shape, or form – it was simply his turn to take charge of a Championship fixture this week.

“The Old Firm is an exceptional game but the general feeling is Bobby handled it well. This fixture will always attract controversy. 

I’ve always said that there is no need to encourage referees to favour one side, all the SFa need to do is pick one who will not need any encouragement, and Madden falls into that category.

As for this nonsense about ” if you’re good enough the referee doesn’t matter” , then you spend an hour and a half getting kicked up the air and see if you can still turn in a top class performance.

See how it feels.

Speaking of Saturdays game, there is some important supporter information..

Approach Routes for Saturday, if approaching by car from the East please note London Rd will close at the Celtic Supporters Associaltion Social Club at 10:45

I’ve got a bad feeling about this….especially after their new manager made a well known satanic gesture during their win over Motherwell last night..

It all reopens after the game, and to be fair, we’ll probably have the place to ourselves again… they’re not exactly noted for hanging around until the end of games, especially if they take what Chris Sutton referred to as a predicted “humping ”

In the meantime, for further fun and frivolity, keep an eye here for developments..

Phil‘s Phurther Phacts

 

Virgil van Dijk will move from Southampton to Liverpool next week for a reputed £75 million , which makes him the most expensive Dutch player in football history.

Despite what Davie Provan once thought..

As part of his original sale from Celtic to the south coast club, the hoops are due a cut of the fee, ranging from between £6m, as reported by most of the petted lip laptop loyal, to £50 million plus a percentage of his reported £180,000 a week wage, which is something I just thought up.

The real figure is 12.5 % (or possibly 13 ) of any profit southampton make on the deal.

Its not a windfall, as some report, its merely the second and final instalment of a deal which was struck when he left the club, largely because Celtic knew he was worth that at the time.

English clubs have always paid less for Scottish based players than any other, and it was a shrewd way of getting a decent price for van Dijk. One consequence of this is that the initial fee for any other Celt moving on will be higher, as Lawwell et al can point to the £55m profit made by Southampton during any negotiations, which in turn will no doubt see the Hampshire clubs scouts hanging around the east end of Glasgow again.

Along with a few others…

Thats also one of the reasons why Celtic try to avoid publicising which players they are interested in bringing to the club, as the EPL vultures are always ready to swoop.

 Technically not an entry, but its where i found the photograph, and it was the funniest phrase…

Nit picking here but I think Southamton is in Hampshire. How the Brother Bobby gets the gig I do not know. well I do but it is still a shock. But it is the fault of one club and that is CELTIC. We should not be taking this. I though the days of the ‘back of the bus’ were over. As a point of principle (i Know talking of principles with regards to this mob is ridiculous). Celtic should be lodging (ha ha ) a complaint and stating the reasons clearly. No other country in the world would countenance this nonsense.. The big Cairo derby (Ahly vs Zamalek) is refereed by foreigners, not Egyptians. I believe the Scottish referee Douglas Stewart from a good while back was once drafted in to referee it. Forget about refs who don’t support either club, aye right, just hire a foreigner. If a Dane makes an arse of it supporters will be less inclined to scream corruption. Personally I think the SFA have chosen Bobby because we all expect him to favour Sevco and our club will do nothing about it. It gives him free reign to ‘honest mistake’ the entire game from beginning to end. I would like to see radical action from Celtic as a club. If they are kicking us off the park and nothing is done about Brendan should end the game. Pull the players of the park and give them the three points. Make a bold statement to the whole world. This will at least get the ball rolling towards some kind of honesty. Celtic then refuse to play against them unless we have foreign refs. Remember only two clubs have stood against the idea of foreign refs and openness and transparency with regards to who refs support and they are Rangers and Sevco

Ralph,

I remember the reptiles playing a game a few months ago at the WilliamDome and the hun fans were singing the he’s one of our own song in reference to Madden. I know refs have got to be impartial but you don’t just give up your allegiances as he claims he has. This is Scotland where it runs deep. I wonder if we were still unbeaten would Brother Madden give contentious decisions that would benefit the Orcs? We better believe he would. Emotional attachment tramps over integrity when it comes to being a hun, it’s all they’ve left.

I recognize this game, it was the opening league match of season 94-95, and Andy Walker’s second debut after his £550k transfer from Bolton. He has just equalised for Celtic against Falkirk at Brockville, from a Willie Falconer cross, 60 seconds after Ian McCall, former player of the original, now historical Rangers F.C., gave Falkirk the lead.

I remember this because, although I wasn’t at the game, I still have the Sportscene highlights on VHS which I watched (well, the Celtic goal and two or three other feisty wee bits), scores of times. The highlights were actually too long at 20+ minutes, unlike nowadays efforts you see where they’re far too short, usually about 5 minutes, only showing a few clips over-replayed with pointless close-ups of managers. I wish the broadcasters would get the balance right, and get some decent commentators again who are descriptive and can generate a bit of excitement, rather than just sitting talking mundane p!sh with their co-commentator.

Although that 94-95 season was ultimately depressing with all those draws and that home strip I couldn’t wait to see being replaced, and playing our home games at Hampden, as a 17-18 year old fan at the time it’s a period I now look back on with fondness because Fergus had just taken over, the old board were finally away, and I spent many a long hour looking at the pictures of Celtic Park being rebuilt in the Celtic View.

It was only a year or so ago that I could bring myself to read “Sack the Board” by Allan Caldwell, a Celtic book I’d owned for many years about the darkest period in Celtic’s modern history, and I thoroughly enjoyed the book, reading about some of our darkest times and contrasting it with how I felt at the time compared with now and our present standing, the sense of relief that we have the kind of team, stadium and club structure fitting of our club and history, compared to what could have been our fate if the old board managed to retain their control of the club, ie a 35,000 seater old-fashioned stadium with a crap team and no real hope for the future.

Remembering the bad old days certainly helps me appreciate our current success, especially when I find myself internally asking “Why are we only beating these c#£+s 2-0?”, as I did the other day Vs Dundee!

As for Andy Walker, ok he seems to have sold out a wee bit to the TV companies to preserve his well-paid media career by sounding a wee bit biased against us at times, but there is no doubt in my mind that he is still a passionate Celtic fan at heart, I’d cut him some slack as they say….

Madden is the result of a broken, corrupt and dysfunctional system.
It makes no difference who the referee is on Saturday because i trust NONE of them, so if it wasn’t Madden it would be another one to distrust.
I think we will dish out a proper hunskelping on Saturday, e, 4 or 5 should be achievable.

I’m afraid that you are correct Monti. Any referee is much of a muchness. Either incompetent or biased or both. Madden is just another one in a long line of very poor referees with a probable agenda that leads to honest mistakes! We are good enough to win this game even with a pisspoor referee.

Due to that terrible injury to Jonny Hayes, we might be looking for a new winger in this transfer windy, this time maybe a short term loan deal might suit better, a permanent signing of Paddy would be sublime.
That and with the addition of a new goalie would be great, I also would be delighted to welcome another centre back to partner Ajer and get rid of the present incumbents. That to me would only enhance the first team squad, nobody should be comfortable in their positions, there should always be somebody pushing them on.
My prediction for Saturday is a win for the Tic. of 3-0, provided Boyata does himself justice.

Too expensive goal line technology – so we can’t have it – allows for more honest mistakes. What a situation where the governing body are unable to invest in technology that helps make accurate and fair decisions. No surprise I suppose, it’s a convenient excuse to aviod a neutral decision based on fact and accuracy something the SPFL are strangers to.

There are two consequences of the Van Dijk transfer that have not been explored. Firstly, Southhampton will be awash with funds to spend. They have previous with raiding Celtic. Ibwould not be surprised if they come back to the well.

Secondly, Van Dijk in at Liverpool, then at least one defender will be going out. Hopefully we are looking at this situation.

If we are competing with S’hampton for any players we can forget it. Their spending power will blow our chances away.

I see why we are trying to keep our moves under wraps.

B) ignore previous thrashings and buy a winger and a striker

C) play a young Norwegian player out of position, praying that he saves you a few tuppence.

D) take the heavy CL defeats seriously enough to heavily invest in the defence, giving the team a strong foundation to qualify for the CL again.

Monti,

You are over harsh. Must be the withdrawal from Christmas cheer!
Ajer has done well in the CB position. He has all the attributes to be an outstanding one…pace, height, heading ability and he can tackle. He is in the enviable position of being a natural athlete as well. How else will he develop unless he is played?

The blend of youth and the experienced Compper may be just the ticket. By all means get another CB in but keep Ajer.

Simo should go if we can get rid of him, as should Eric. Retaining Boyata depends on who we get in, if anyone.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think that I read that Virgil started out as a CF but received a leg injury, and while in rehab his coach suggested that he try CB. Players can convert. It is a matter of coaching, attributes and opportunity.

Take me, for example, (too late now, I guess!), i started as a bad left winger and was converted to a poor LB. i wanted to switch to another position to continue my improvement, but the club thought it was better for all parties if I switchedto a position outside of football! Actually, they did arrange a trial with Albion Rovers but I declined!

Sevco Huns on Saturday:
Gordon
Lustig/Ajer/Boyata/Tierney
Brown/Ntcham
Forrest/McGregor/Sinclair
Dembele
subs: Bitton/Armstrong/Griffiths
Leave Dembele on for the first half to see if he’s got his Hunskelper mojo working. If not, get Griff on there asap.
If we play as we can, then the Huns can’t keep up. If we play as we can, we could really maul them.I can’t see us losing. A draw would be the worst result if we’re not on form. Otherwise,3-0 to the good guys. Sinclair and Forrest on the score sheet.
McGregor does well against Sevco
Dembele does well against Sevco.
Forrest has yet to score against the Zombies? I read this but it doesn’t seem true. Can anyone set the record straight for me?
Griff could cause the Sevco back 4 real problems.
